Review

I have 2001 expedition.Purchased new.From day 1 I have a knocking noise at startup that goes away after a few minutes of warm-up.Dealer says normal for 5.4l.Also since purchase I have noticed the vehicle runs differently in cool/cold temps versus temps above 88 degrees.Truck seems to bog somewhat from dead stop.I have169k on vehicle know.Replaced a few coils, ball joint,and alternator over 17yrs.A/C still cold,I change oil,5w-30 syn blend, every 3-4k.Burns @ 1.5 qts between changes,no smoke.Wish I knew what caused those 2 issues.I have lived with them for 17yrs!

Review

The Expedition is as rock solid as a vehicle can get. I've taken my luxury Eddie Bauer 2001 through rough brushy terrain, down dry desert river gulches, across rivers and streams. It climbs hills like a goat with its 4 wheel drive, and never left me stranded. Yet it's elegance allows it to fit in when you and your partner head off to the opera. It's tough like a truck, and, at the same time, about as luxurious as anyone could want; an extremely smooth and quiet ride. Versatility is another descriptor. It seats seven with the 3rd row seating installed, or remove it and hugely increase your cargo area. You just can't beat the Expedition; that's why I just bought another one.

Review

I've owned this truck since new, and other then basic maintenance and a tune up at 100k, I've had no issues. Ive got the 4wd with the 5.4 and it's never let me down, fuel economy isn't great but it's pulling a 6700 pound vehicle. I also have a 2005 expedition that has the 5.4 3v. It has 145,000 and no issues at all. Ford builds a great vehicle. I plan on getting a 2016 with the ecoboost in the next few weeks.

2001 Ford Expedition SUV XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

The menu did not allow you to select 5.4 l.
I purchased with 21k miles and have loved this for over the road trips.
I pulled an 8500 lb boat from Wash DC to Key West no problem.
At 110k I replaced plugs and three coils not sweat.
I did have to have the ball joints and universal replaced at around 100k.
She still runs great.
Recently got 17 mpg on a trip from Pittsburg Pa to Panama City fl 70+ mph.
It now has 153k miles and I have no intention of ever getting rid of it.
Have run synthetic oil since purchase and have the transmission serviced on a 40k schedule.
Lucas transmission additive makes it shift smooth.
Lucas fuel additive keeps the injectors clean.


Best Features

Smooth ride, fast acceleration.
